Food Stamp Challenge – What I’ve Learned

Yesterdays Chicken Fried Rice was great. By mid-afternoon, I wished there was more. Chinese food does that to me. I baked chicken, carrots, bell pepper, onion and Italian dressing last night. I will add that to some rice for lunch today, another one of my cooking experiments.

Food Stamp Challenge Diabetic Choices

I have been looking at recipes for diabetics since this runs in my family. The American Diabetes Association is a good source for diabetics but they also realize that gluten-free is important to many.

Food Stamp Challenge-Experimenting is best

I need batteries in my camera so I did not get a picture of today’s lunch but that experiment turned out to be delicious. I highly recommend experimenting with recipes and ideas to fit your family and budget. Some of my best meals have been experiments.

What if? Food Stamp Challenge Day 2

Well, after warming up my lunch, it tasted good and was more than I needed. If I were doing this for a family, I would plan on one chicken breast to feed one adult and a small child or two older children.

Food Stamp Challenge with a twist: Day 1

I was patting myself on the back this morning. I was out of town and had not taken any of my food with me. I knew I could make it back to St. Joe without any problem because of the Jolly Ranchers I had in my purse and the large glass of water I had in the car.

Tamara's Food Stamp Challenge - Day 3

As I end day three of the the Food Stamp Challenge, I am becoming very humbled. I am so thankful for the life I have and the many blessings in my life. I can look forward to getting back to my "normal" routine in four days. I can go back to the store and buy what I want and if I don't feel like cooking, no biggie, I can eat out.

An Experience - My Food Stamp Challenge

As I enter day 4 of the Food Stamp Challenge I would defiantly say it has been an eye-opening experience. When I went to the store I didn’t have any idea what I was going to buy. As I began to find items to eat for the week and put them in my cart I was adding up the total to make sure I didn’t go over my budget.

Food Stamps aren't a Safety Net - they're a Trampoline

It's a presidential election year and competing views of how the American dream can both be attained and protected will be front and center in our national conversation. But while the American Dream, once an optimistic view of a nation serving as the "shining city on a hill," will be debated, the darker more challenging American Myth of employment will demand attention.
